What will I learn?
Did you know there are approximately 420 species of pollinating bee species in Ontario? Unfortunately, many of them have recently been categorized as at risk in Canada. During the hour together, learn about the importance of bees, bee diversity, and basic identification skills with a particular focus on Bumble Bees. You will learn about threats to bees, how you can help, bumblebee community science initiatives you can participate in and WPC's Bumble Bee Recovery Program.
You will also learn about how EBC supports these important pollinators and how you can get involved with our organization.
Tiffani Harrison is currently the Conservation Outreach & Field Biologist for Wildlife Preservation Canada's Native Pollinator Initiative.
